  • Description
    Alonzo King LINES Ballet is a celebrated contemporary ballet company guided since 1982 by the unique artistic vision of Alonzo King. Born in Albany, Georgia, to a prominent 1960s civil rights family with ties to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, he learned early on the importance of aligning actions with beliefs.

    A noted balletmaster, King creates works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions, investing classical ballet with new expressive potential. Understanding ballet as a science — one founded on universal, geometric principles of energy and evolution — King continues to develop a new language of movement from its classical forms and techniques.

    Extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers and inventive choreography tear down the fourth wall for a profound sense of shared humanity.
